Ooh! This hat!
I am seriously digging this hat!
I received a custom order over at my Etsy shop shop the other day. Happily, the customer knew exactly what he wanted. A hat with a gray brim and eggplant purple crown to match his new ski coat. He even sent me a link to the coat so I could see the colors. I just love it when the customer knows, and can verbalize, what he wants.
Once again, Knit Picks was on the ball with their shipping and the yarn arrived quickly. And I immediately began knitting.
I am absolutely LOVING these two yarns together. From looking at the skeins, I was afraid there wouldn't be enough contrast and that they were going to make a rather bla hat but... Goodness! It's like they were made to go together. The gray (Mineral Heather) has hints of the eggplant (Amethyst) in it and they are absolutely perfect together!
Now, if I'd only had more time to knit today. Poor baby Hayden took a tumble this morning, fractured her skull and gave herself a concussion. She's okay though. She has a big old knot on her forehead, but she's home and didn't have to stay in the hospital.
I know I shouldn't laugh, and I know I'm going straight to Hell for it but... I can't help but laugh at Hayden. She's obviously dizzy and having some vision issues due to the concussion. She keeps falling down and even out/off of her child size comfy chair. Now that I'm over the original "OMG! She fractured her skull!!" panic attack, I can't help but laugh at her as she stumbles around looking like a little drunk toddler and shaking her head in what I assume is an attempt to get her vision to clear.
She really is funny to watch, but now I'm feeling extremely guilty for admitting it so I'm going back to knitting.
